Gravensteen and its collection


The Gravensteen is the former stone house of the Count. It is the old administrative and governmental center of the Count of Holland, Zeeland and West Friesland. It is also the oldest prison in Zeeland. The prisoners, who were locked up here under poor conditions, have left most traces. The hostage room gives a striking picture of what it must have been like. In the oak walls and doors various images and texts have been carved, the oldest dating from 1577.
